I don't think most New Mexicans are really after the styles I am so I tend to find a lot when I go. Today was a gold mine.
I will have a post showing you all of them later.
I even got Allison's birthday presents (our birthday is coming up!!! eek)
I'm really not used to solitary days. Growing up with a twin kind of made that never happen. Usually all my days off are spent with Brad (which I love) but today he was working so I ventured out myself.
It was nice.
A lot of Ryan Adams (Brad hates that guy), First Aid Kit, The Dodos and just watching the mountains fade into desert.
It's really gorgeous out here. It's rugged in a way that the Midwest definitely is not. I feel like I've gotten a tougher edge just from living out here (that's probably just me hoping that it's true). It's a different feeling though driving through miles and miles and scrub land. There are so many different shades of brown. who knew.
It's the small things in life.
A few days ago we were listening to Marla Hansen on the way home from town and with our crappy FM transmitter it's always a bit staticy, but it was such a good night that you could believe that you were listening to it on vinyl. That little scratch made it even better.
Oh, and I got my helmet in.
Check it out
my winter coat makes me happy
Saturday is almost done and the mountain is getting shady already.
Hope your weekend is going great.
I also hope you found some treasures of your own and I would love to hear about them.
